Proaudio del Norte and CHAUVET Professional Help Mario Moro Flores Convey Mood of Banda MSPosted on March 7, 2023
MONTERAY, MEXICO – “We have broken paradigms,” Sergio Lizárraga, leader of Banda MS once told an interviewer, referring to his band’s popularity, which has transcended all expectations to prove that banda music has unlimited appeal in today’s market beyond Mexico.
Sold out shows before wildly appreciative crowds from Nashville to Las Vegas have provided convincing proof of Lizárraga’s paradigm busting claim. It’s easy to see why fans are falling in love with this band. Bouncy songs like “Por Mi No Te Detengas,” and “El Color de Tus Ojos” will make anyone feel like dancing, regardless of where they’re from or which language they speak. And ballads like “Quien Pierde Mas,” can spark romance anywhere.
The uncanny ability of Banda MS to touch audiences was on full display when the chart-topping band appeared at Arena Monterrey, supported note-for-upbeat-note by a dynamic lighting design created by Mario More Flores.
Helping Flores work his magic was a lighting rig featuring over 200 CHAUVET Professional fixtures supplied by Víctor “Chacho” Gutiérrez and his team at Proaudio del Norte. Included in this power-packed collection of fixtures were 32 Maverick Storm 4 Profile units. With an output of 60,000 lumens, the powerful profile unit, which features a 180mm front lens, razor sharp shutter framing, and 8.5:1 zoom, had no difficulty filling the 18,000-capacity venue with bright and vividly bold looks.
Joining the profiles in the rig were 80 ÉPIX Strip IP units, 20 Maverick MK3 Washes, 24 Color STRIKE M motorized strobes, 24 Rogue R2 Washes and 24 STRIKE 4 multi formatted fixtures.
Mario Moro Flores availed himself of all the features offered by the Maverick Storm 4 Profile and other fixtures when creating his 360-degree design, flooding every corner of the stage with color, and creating eye candy with his pixel mapped LED bars, colorful washes, and blinders. All these fixtures framed the presentation of Banda MS, increasing the energy of the various emotions that the attendees experienced throughout the concert.
Víctor “Chacho” Gutiérrez Director and Owner of Proaudio del Norte, who has added a large number of CHAUVET Professional equipment to his inventory over the last few years was very pleased with the results. “The brand because it integrates extraordinary high-performance, high-quality products,” he commented.
On this night in Monterrey, that added up to a memorable concert experience for fans who came to see a band that defies easy categorization.
